Capitalism is apparently a continuous merry go round of bubbles and then burst where the economy is concerned, but the too big to fail are bailed out by the too poor and too insignificant to matter when it comes to returning the economy to its former self.
It's that time of year when magical wishes are in the air and people believe that fantasies can come true...no, it's not Rand Paul's Presidential campaign launch, it's Christmas!
One would reasonably ask, if Wall Street continues to be close with Hillary and donating to her while she continues to attack them in speeches...do they know something that Progressive Democrat voters may not know?
Then, I got curious. How the hell does anyone take advantage of someone who is, at least, intelligent enough to accumulate investment capital? What does it take to convince a "savvy" person to get sucked into a scam? Apparently, not a lot.
What if as a massive group, the American People enforced a TARP deal in the reverse direction, from the banks to the people?
There is such a sad feeling in this country now that our government seems to have completely failed us. The Occupy Movement is the 99 Percenters Response to that failure.
Elizabeth Warren divined the reasons for the financial meltdown and continued economic sluggishness--the fact that the middle class now needs 104 paychecks a year to pay for a lifestyle their parents had with 52.
It's like the Republicans have built a scale where the fulcrum is so far to the right that conservatism would be in the center and issues most Americans support are "far left".
